This week PETA announced its 2013 top 10 veg-friendly baseball parks. The SF Giants were listed respectably in position four citing menus of veggie dogs, garlic fries, rice bowls and veg tacos across the park. I usually find the veggie dogs a boiled bore, and thought to myself - 'what hot dog would I want to eat at a park?' Well, this it! A grilled dog topped with creamy hummus and crunchy, salty herbed-cucumber salad. It's a summertime hit for a picnic, barbecue or for taking to your next outdoor sporting event.
