Add to the rice the chopped dates, nuts, onions, scallions, olives, parsley, and mint.
In a small glass bowl, combine lemon juice, vinegar (apple cider), oil, cinnamon, and ginger. Pour over rice mixture and fluff with a fork until mixed. Add sections of oranges. Serve on a platter and garnish with left over pieces of orange/dates/pecans, etc.
