    1       t            Vanilla extract

   pineapple tidbits or chunks, drained (reserving 3/4 cup juice), coconut and
   sugar; refrigerate. Cut 1 loaf French or Italian bread in 3/4-inch slices.
   Place bread slices in a single layer in a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan; set
   aside.  In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk, vanilla extract, salt, sugar and
   reserved pineapple juice; pour over bread, turning slices to coat
   completely.  Cover and refrigerate overnight or until all liquid is
   absorbed. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter or
   margarine.  Add bread a few pieces at a time and cook until browned on both
   sides, turning bread once.  Serve with reserved Ambrosia Salsa.
