They all need to be soaked in vinegar but its there, free and healthy. Below is one of the resources I used. Find The resource you like but for goodness sake give them a try you’ll be glad you did. “Free Food”. I like making salad or wilting greens from this list. All depends on the seasons and your area, of course.

You’re  in the woods with some friends and realize neither of you packed enough food, what’s your first instinct? I certainly wouldn’t panic and neither should you. You are probably armed with tools in your backpack. Combine that with the Earth vast variety of natural foods; you should have little problem in getting nourishment. What then are those food that aren’t only found in restaurants or grocery stores?
This variety of foods include; wild berries, edible plants and even seeds! Sounds questionable? No need to worry as these wild edible plants, berries and seeds, are totally safe for consumption as long as you are certain of their identity when collecting.
If you are at any point unsure of the plant, you can perform the Universal Edibility Test. But! If you not one hundred percent sure of the plant that you are identifying, I would advise against consuming it.
