Peel and trim the ends from each orange and grapefruit. Using a paring knife, cut along the membranes on both sides of each segment. Free the segments and add them to a medium bowl.  Then squeeze what remains of orange and grapefruit membranes to extract all remaining juice. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, scallions, mint, orange zest, lemon zest and red pepper flakes. Toss lightly and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
