Rinse the orange and grapefruit in hot water, then wipe dry.
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.
Use a sharp knife to remove the peel and bitter white pith from each citrus fruit, following the curve of the fruit.
Working over a bowl to capture the juice, cut between membranes to remove whole segments from each fruit.
Halve the date, remove the pit (if necessary) and cut the flesh into very thin strips.
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.
