Lemon juice has tested high in salicylates, lime has never been tested. Some people can tolerate it in small amounts making it a nice addition for acidity over rice vinegar. Barley malt vinegar can be used, and if you don't like vinegar, a little ascorbic acid might work well too.
Pecans and hazelnuts have been tested once in 1985 as low in salicylates. RPAH lists them as high, which also includes their amine levels - pecans are high in amines, and hazelnuts are moderate. Many low-sal folks can tolerate them just fine in small amounts.
Make sure to find a clean bacon without honey, pepper, or other high-salicylate items. Nitrates are not salicylates, but some chemically-sensitive individuals may not tolerate nitrates well.
