Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until crumbly dough forms. Using your fingers, press dough into prepared pan, covering bottom with an even layer. Prick dough several times with fork. Place in oven and bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool. Do not turn off oven.
Prepare topping: In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in coconut, pineapple, mango, papaya and nuts. Pour mixture over cooled, baked crust and spread evenly with spatula. Bake until topping is lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to rack and let cool completely. Cut into 24 portions and serve with passion fruit–coconut salsa.
