Place the cucumber slices and grapes in the bowl and marinate them for at least 30 minutes or until you are ready to use them.
In a small saucepan, bring 5 fluid ounces [5/8 cup] of the water to the boil over moderate heat.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the jelly [gelatin].
Stir until the jelly [gelatin] has dissolved.
Stir in the remaining water.
Stir in the orange and lemon juice, onion, cayenne, salt and pepper.
Cool the jelly [gelatin] until it is almost set.
With a slotted spoon, remove the grapes and cucumber slices from the marinade.
Drain them thoroughly on kitchen paper towels and then add most of them to the jelly [gelatin].
Reserve the marinade and the remaining grapes and cucumber slices for the garnish.
Spoon the jelly [gelatin] into a 2 1/2 pint [1 1/2 quart] mould.
Cover the mould with plastic wrap or aluminium foil and put it in the refrigerator to chill for 3 to 4 hours or until the jelly [gelatin] is completely set.
Arrange the lettuce on a serving dish.
Quickly dip the mould into hot water and turn the jelly [gelatin] out on to the lettuce.
Arrange the reserved grapes and cucumber slices around the salad and pour a little of the reserved marinade over them.
