I had the same thing happen to me. I ordered a "nut free" salad and after eating most of it I bit into a walnut.
My DD is the one who is allergic but I don't eat PN/TN for her safety.
I thought it was really frightening of course!

I once ordered a Greek salad at Panera Bread. I found a slivered almond in it. I am not allergic to nuts so for me it was a treat! However, if I were allergic, I would not have felt safe eating there in the first place since I already knew they have nuts in a lot of their foods.

Have you ever seen a make table for salads?
I worked in a Country Club for several years and each ingredient for salads was in a small square container.
The ingredients were applied by hand in a hurry and slopped all over the containers.
For example, tomato pieces in the olives,
olives in the almonds etc. etc.
