Do you have environmental allergies? It may not be an amine or salicylate reaction, it could be Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS), where certain fruits and vegetables contain proteins very similar to those in certain pollens. When you consume the fruits/vegs (usually uncooked; a lot of people with OAS can eat them cooked or with the skin removed), your body confuses the proteins for your allergies and responds accordingly.
Also, I noticed that you said you are eating tomato sauce now and again. FYI - tomatoes are high in both amines and salicylates.
Here is a great website I found that lists the food chemical levels in tons of foods (not just a list of what is low). HTH!
