Agree with comments below. As a native English speaker, I would say "made a salad." That implies a large bowl for everyone, or salad as a course of the dinner. Since Russian has no indefinite articles, adding one in English should pretty much always be OK.

It has been 2 years since people commented on this. Please fix it!
