  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
  2. Rinse with cold water; drain again.
  3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, lemon juice, crushed red pepper flakes (if using) and tarragon or dill (I prefer dill - due to the fact of tarragons licorice flavor).
