Zest the grapefruit and one orange, then peel the grapefruit and the oranges and removed the segments making sure that no membrane remains. Place the fruit segments into a bowl along with the roast almonds then chop the mint and chives and add to the bowl. Add in the zest from the grapefruit and orange, then mix well.
