Which ingredients are missing ?

Ratings : Pers. # 1 gave  8,  Pers .# 2 gave  9 ( On a 1- 10 scale where the higher the number the better the food ) 

Salad ingredients: 
I used ,
1/2 Large cucumber - Cut into slices 
Mini-Heirloom tomatoes
Carrot shreds 
Sunflower seeds ( though I forgot them . You won't see any in the photo 
Salad mix ( I used Olivia's Organics brand " Spring Mix with Herbs" 5 oz. ) It is a wonderful combination with this quick meal . 

Dressing : 
Balsamic vinaigrette  see the photos in the photo album section of the group ! 
I also added coconut oil ( NOT EXTRA VIRGIN) - 1/2 tsp. per bowl 
Sea Salt pepper to taste if desired. But, I don't think it needs it . 

Other ingredients: 
Care, a side of attention, and Organic Brown Rice Pasta see photos !

1. Cook brown rice pasta according to directions on package . Take off burner and allow to cool while you prepare the vegetables and seeds if using. You can add coconut oil at this stage if you'd like . 
2.Rinse and dry veggies and put them in a large bowl also, add sunflower seeds ( shelled ) into the bowl and combine ingredients into a salad with a fork or tool of choice .
3. Put cooled pasta in container and mix in dressing . Coconut oil if you held back .
4. Add desired amount of salad 
5. Combine again . Taste .
Add more Balsamic Vinaigrette to it .
