How do you like your potato salad?

I've been experimenting with different potato salad recipes. I just made one with blue cheese, celery, scallions, and parsley with a bit too much white wine vinegar. My mom makes one lightly dressed with a French vinaigrette from the Joy of Cooking, tossed with celery and capers. My spouse's favorite involves Japanese msg mayo, shiso leaves, and chopped pickled plums.

How do you prefer your potato salad? Do you like it with vinegar? Mayo? Mustard? What sort of herbs? Do you like it creamy or not, with crunchy bits or not? Cold or warm?
