"Salut" is very familiar French. It is used to mean "hello" and "goodbye", or rather "hi" in the first case and "bye" in the second if you really want to respect the register.

Greetings everyone", "My salutations to all"


Explanation:
This expression really means "Salutations to everyone" or "I salute you all". With time, it has become something more familiar and is now considered merely a (brief) greeting formula. ( It is used extensively in Québec, by the way, as a very friendly greeting. "Hé! Salut tout le monde!")

I would translate it with "Greetings everyone" or "My salutations to all", even though this sounds a little high class, because it has the right "feel" to it...
