So now that you know what it is (and your mouth is undoubtedly watering), we’re sure that you’re wondering how we came up with the name- “The Landlord”!
Well before we jump right in, here’s a little back story you should know...
Esther and Marissa (the beautiful daughter of Scott & Esther Widor) are part of a cult. Now before you get all worked up, let us finish! They are part of the Cross Fit Cult of Granite City CrossFit. And if you've ever met (or are married to) a CrossFit cult member, you know the extremity of this healthy “lifestyle”. Recently there has been one diet that is very popular among the CrossFit Crowd, the Paleo diet , (aka the Caveman Diet). “The Landlord” salad just so happens to fit this diet.
So, back to the name. As we mentioned, Esther and Marissa are part of the CrossFit Cult. The owner/ one of the coaches at Granite City CrossFit is Jeremy Lang- a graduate of St. Cloud State University (Go Huskies!) and former MMA fighter. Well, Jeremy’s MMA nickname just so happened to be “The Landlord” and as you can probably guess, he is the creator of our new salad.
Because we like to accommodate all of our guests, Esther made “The Landlord” for one of her fellow CrossFitters. It was such a hit, that we decided to keep it around. While it is not on our current menu, it is available upon request!
So the next time you’re at the BL and you’re craving something fresh, don’t be afraid to ask for “The Landlord” salad. Or you can always just flash us your Cross Fit badge (we’ll get the hint).
