Awesome Sausage Potato Soup with Autumn Salad

We've been doing movie nights each week with friends. They are lots o' fun. This past time it was my turn to cook. Here is what we did:

Autumn Salad

This salad is pretty awesome. The creamy goat cheese dressing is killer!
Adapted from Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes
Salad
-Mixed Greens
-2 Apples, Sliced
-Grapes, cut in 1/2
-Craisins
-Walnuts

Dressing
Blend this together:
-A tub of goat cheese (4-6 oz)
-1.5 T honey
-2T EVOO
-2t Apple Cider Vinegar
-2T Lemon Juice
-1T Water

I also made this soup. Don't tell anyone the secret ingredients. Keep 'em in the dark. They will go crazy trying to figure it out.

Adapted from the former Cafe Johnsonia
-5-6 potatoes, cut into 1" chunks
-1 med onion, chopped
-6 c. chicken broth
-1lb. bulk pork sausage
-1 c. half & half
-1/2 stick butter
-1.5 T vanilla
-2T balsalmic vinegar
Boil potatoes & onions in chicken stock until tender. Brown the sausage in a separate pan. Add to potatoes. Add half & half and butter and cook until melted. Add vanilla and vinegar right before serving. It's good stuff.
