I agree with defragmybrain, making a salad for dinner sounds more natural and should be acceptable as well. You would typically make one large salad and everyone would get a serving

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!

I think that "granddad" with a double "d" is North American English - in the UK we usually write "grandad" I believe
