...Russian dressing is hard to fine in restaurants in the PAC-NW, 1000Island is as close as they seem to offer.
But I agree that it's not quite right; you can fake a decent counterfeit
Russian dressing by blending cocktail sauce and tartar sauce,
but that'll only do in a pinch...

The PAC-NW isn't anywhere close to 1000 Islands.  And a 1000 Island would be counterfeit if it didn't contain at least two living trees.
