Can we add a note to a salt flowchart?

I am using a SALT flowchart to mock up a website.  I would like to add comments to the side of a "panel" to give information and document for both stakeholders and devs (when accepted). This would let me describe things that may not be apparent in the diagram, without adding additional text to the panel itself for clarification purposes, asking questions, etc.

I'm not too sure what you're calling a flowchart.  But you can put salt diagrams inside another diagram type that allows notes, like this:

@startuml
label Salt1 [
{{
salt
{^"My group box"
  Login    | "MyName   "
  Password | "****     "
  [Cancel] | [  OK   ]
}
}}
]
note right of Salt1 : This is the logon page

Hello S.,

Here is a workaround, using sub-diagram, as:

@startuml
label l [
{{
salt
{
  <&person> Login  | "MyName   "
  <&key> Password  | "****     "
  [<&circle-x> Cancel ] | [ <&account-login> OK   ]
}
}}
]

note right of l
//note right//
On this form.
please to put * on 
Password field
end note

note bottom of l: //note bottom//

@enduml

If that can help,
Regards.
