If you are looking for a salad that goes outside the box then make reservations at the warm and rustic Stonewood Grill & Tavern.

With locations in Daytona Beach, Port Orange and Ormond Beach, there is no shortage of tables to try their most popular salad, the Asian Chicken Salad, or anything else on their expansive menu.

This unconventional salad starts with ginger lime marinated chicken breast that has been marinated for four hours. Served on a bed of chilled rice noodles and crispy wontons, topped with fresh mixed greens, house made sesame ginger dressing and finished with Asian slaw, this salad is sure to fill your stomach while refreshing your palette in the hot summer months.

"This started as a summertime salad and turned into a year-round favorite," said Joe Clayton, regional director.

What gives this salad a unique edge, aside from the ingredients, is the eye appeal. Unlike most salads, the Asian Chicken Salad topples over the whole plate bursting with pops of red, purple and green of the Asian slaw against the browns of the noodles and wontons. The fresh ingredients give the salad a crisp texture.

The ambiance of the restaurant is semi-formal, although if you attend in your summer wardrobe you'd fit right in. The tall wooden a-frame ceiling with long cushioned booths and tables makes for a comfortable lunch or dinner experience. The low lighting and stone fireplaces give the dining room a comfortable and homey vibe perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.
