Salsa verde without tomatillos

I can't find tomatillos anywhere where I live, but i'd really like to try something close to salsa verde. Meybe green tomatoes? I know it wouldn't be traditional, but I'm craving the cinlantro-lime-chilli mixture and I feel like the tomato-based salsa recipes don't really close de deal for me (too tomato-y and not 'fresh' enough). Will green tomatoes still be too tomato-y? Is there a recipe that simply does not call for tomatillos?

This does seem delicious

But THIS has been in my dreams for a while (I love sourcream)
