Smoked Sausage, German Potato Salad and ?????

I have some Smoked Sausage I need to use. I was thinking of maybe a Warm German Potato Salad and need suggestions of something else for a side dish to go with it. Also, would love recommendations of tried and true German Potato Salad recipes. My mom used to make it and she has since passed away and I never got her recipe. But it was always so good. I know it was fairly simple. There are so many recipes out there and I really want to find "the one". Who better to ask than CH's??
I love Asparagus and Spinach. Unfortunately my DH does not like either one (maybe DH and I should of discussed this over 25 years ago - but I can't give up on him over his veggies). Now Broccoli is another matter. That he loves (especially if it has anything to do with cheese sauce - lol).
Here's my potato salad recipe, derived from the German:
-2.2 lbs. waxy potatoes (such as red potatoes or Yukon Golds)
-1 Tbsp. whole caraway seed
-1 Tbsp. salt
-1 c. HOT chicken/vegetable broth (from bullion cube is OK; Oma’s not that fussy)
-1/4 c. sweet onion, minced
-2 Tbsp. shallot, minced
-2 Tbsp. chives, snipped
-2 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
-2 Tbsp. white vinegar
-5 Tbsp. oil (avoid olive oil if you plan to serve cold)
-3/4 tsp. sugar
-1/2 tsp. spicy German or Dijon mustard
-2 Tbsp. parsley, chopped
-salt and pepper, to taste

As for your third side, a simple green salad would be totally authentic. Ideally with pumpkin-seed-oil vinaigrette, but that's not crucial. Definitely have some crusty Kaiser rolls handy and spicy mustard.
