Good Evening Does Not Replace As-Salaamu Alaykum
Question:

A common widespread practice nowadays is to say good morning or good evening, rather then to say the Islamic greeting.
Answer:

The greeting that has been reported is As-Salaamu Alaykum or As-Salaamu Alayk. After beginning with this, you may continue to give any other kind of greeting, such as good morning or good evening. These greetings come after the legislated greeting. As for preceding the legislated greeting with such statements, this is wrong.
