Plantago major, commonly known as plantain, or broadleaf plantain, can be found in lawns, roadsides, trails, and waste land. Its close relative, [Plantago lanceolata] is also edible and is very similar but with longer, narrower leaves. An easy way to help identify this plant is to pull apart the leaf and check for stringy vascular tissue, it's very obvious.

The leaves are edible, raw or cooked. They're also useful for rashes or insect bites. Simply bruise the leaf or tear it up with your fingers, then hold that on the affected area for a while.
