Thousand Islands Dressing is a famous salad dressing that contains mayonnaise, ketchup, and a mixture of chopped vegetables. Texas Island Dressing adds Pace Picante Sauce. The same recipe (perhaps popularized by Pace) appears on many websites.

Wikipedia: Thousand Island Dressing
Thousand Island dressing is a variety of salad dressing commonly made of mayonnaise, ketchup, and a mixture of finely chopped vegetables, most often pickles, onions, bell peppers, and/or green olives; chopped hard-boiled egg is also common.
