Cross-contamination occurs when gluten inadvertently gets on your gluten-free food. It can happen when your silverware drawer fills up with household crumbs or if you share condiments with wheat-eaters. Many gluten-free followers assume the salad bar is safe, but I recently stood behind someone who used the crouton tongs for every other item she dished onto her plate. So when using the communal tongs, make sure you wipe them first with a clean napkin and dig down to the bottom of the lettuce!
