Two crashes ago we had a super recipe thread on potato salad. I learned from that to print them, as they're now forever gone. Here's one that didn't sound too bad, but not as good as the long gone recipe from Chieftain, who formerly posted here.
Warm Sausage and Potato Salad
Source: Quick from Scratch - Soups and Salads
For this French-style potato salad, toss the warm potatoes with broth or wine so they absorb the flavor of the liquid. If you can get a delicious French garlic sausage, this would be a great place to use it.

For the Potatoes:
1 pound boiling potatoes (about 3), peeled, halved lengthwise, and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices
3 tablespoons canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Dressing:
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons red wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
For the Sausages:
1/2 pound smoked sausage, such as kielbasa (sausage) , quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 large head romaine lettuce, shredded (about 2 quarts)
FOR THE POTATOES:
Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and put them in a glass or stainless-steel bowl. Add the chicken broth and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt to the warm potatoes and toss gently.
FOR THE DRESSING:
Meanwhile, in a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Add the oil slowly, whisking.
FOR THE SAUSAGES:
Put a large nonstick frying pan over moderate heat. Add the smoked sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausage is brown and warmed through, about 3 minutes. Remove the sausage and drain on paper towels.
Toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons of the dressing and the parsley. Toss the romaine into the remaining dressing. Put the lettuce on plates and top with the potatoes and sausage.
The French often serve a simple and straightforward, fresh and fruity Beaujolais with smoked sausage and potato salad. Who are we to argue?
