1 Rinse the orange and grapefruit in hot water, then wipe dry.
2 Use a peeler to remove a wide strip of zest (about 3 cm or approximately 1 inch long) from each citrus fruit. Cut crosswise into thin strips.
3 Use a sharp knife to remove the peel and bitter white pith from each citrus fruit, following the curve of the fruit.
4 Working over a bowl to capture the juice, cut between membranes to remove whole segments from each fruit.
5 Halve the date, remove the pit (if necessary) and cut the flesh into very thin strips.
6 Mix the date with the citrus segments, half of the zest strips and the collected juice. Let stand for 10 minutes before arranging fruit salad on a platter. Serve sprinkled with the remaining zest strips.
