Shrimp and Salsa Verde lettuce wraps

This time, rather than suggesting that sandwiches be made into lettuce wraps I'm demonstrating it! And don't tell me the wraps pictured below don't look fresh, delicious and at least as appetizing, if not more so, than their pita pocketed counterparts.

But the real beauty of this recipe is that it doesn't require a stove, microwave, or any fancy equipment. Just a knife and a can opener. It's almost too easy.....;)

1/2 cup finely chopped jalepeno
1 small tomato, chopped
1/2 orange bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups ice berg lettuce, chopped
1 can corn
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 can (6 oz.) salsa verde
1 lb cooked shrimp (peeled and deveined)
4 lettuce cups (from head of ice berg lettuce)
Feta cheese

In a medium sized bowl combine shrimp with salsa verde. In another slightly larger bowl combine everything but the feta. Scoop equal portions from each bowl into the lettuce cups and top with feta. And cilantro...if you must;)
