Salad bars are not very safe places for us. People drop croutons in the dressings or the other containers that should otherwise be gluten-free. Sorry your having a rough time!

Do you have problems with dairy? That is the first thought that comes to my mind at a salad bar besides possible cross contamination. What kind of dressing did you use? Is it possible you have problems with soy (in mayo) or high fructose (in ketchup, BBQ sauce, fruit drinks). Sometimes dressings can have these in them.

I rarely will eat any salad dressing at a restaurant. If you look at the labels of most salad dressings you will see soy sauce, maltodextrin, MSG, soy protein... all can have gluten. And, of course, the cross contamination is a big problem.
If a restaurant tosses their salad in a bowl, that bowl is usually used for salad with croutons. I have had waiters go back to the salad area and pick out the croutons! They can also use the same tossing utensils on croutoned salad. Not very safe.
I often ask for the vinegar and oil if it is balsamic and the oil is olive. Otherwise I just put lemon on it. I can't eat dairy either, so that is something to test out. I ate a little dairy (the eggs were cooked in butter and I patted it off before I ate it) 5 days ago and had D for 3 days. Not fun.

Sorry you got so ill. It gets so old to keep running into gluten when you think you are doing so well. I have a "zero-tolerance" policy for myself... if I think it might have gluten, I don't eat it, even if I am starving. I have had to go to the hospital before when I was in so much pain, so don't want to do that again. Nothing tastes as good as Gluten Free feels! Hope that made you smile.

Maltodextrin, MSG and soy protein are all gluten-free. I have not seen a dressing that contains soy sauce, but yes, soy sauce usually contains wheat.

Usually, it's in asian salad dressings, like sesame ginger dressing. They're rather popular on the west coast, but I don't know how common they are back east.
