Salsa Verde?

I got the most beautiful purple tomatillos from Carl at Blue Pike Farm. I made salsa with them. It was wonderful. Because of the color of the tomatillos it was also the most beautiful sort of plum color.  The problem is – what do I call it? I always just say salsa verde when referring to a salsa made from tomatillos because it’s green. This isn’t green. I couldn’t really call it red salsa- that would imply tomatoes. Besides, it isn’t red. So I gave up with a new name and decided to just post the recipe.
