Themed movie nights in are my new thing. We’ve a few of them lately – one with my friends, and one with my kids, and now it’s time for some mamma time! Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is available on digital now, on Blu-Ray October 23, and with its stunning setting in the Greek islands, you’ve gotta whip up a Greek dish to get in the spirit (before you start belting out ABBA songs, of course).
I made this super easy Greek Salad and dove in, this time with my daughter. She scarfed down half of my salad, and while I haven’t gotten her singing Dancing Queen with me just yet, the movie is appropriate for her with its PG-13 rating and we she had a fun night with her very own Mamma Mia!
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again on Digital Now
The cast of this movie is top notch. I fell in love with Lily James as Cinderella and she’s fantastic in this role, too. Meryl Streep, Andy Garcia, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried….CHER! The music is amazing, and the scenery is going to have you wanting to book a trip to Greece on the double.
Check out the trailer and be ready: You have a 50/50 chance of singing ABBA for the rest of the day.

Greek Salad Recipe
The Greek Salad I made for our Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again movie night couldn’t have been easier. I have never really made a Greek Salad before, but I’m definitely doing this on the regular now.
It’s right up my alley because there is no lettuce! Anyone else never get lettuce at a salad bar? I only ever get a plate full of veggies, so this is perfect for me. And my family loved it too. The dressing is simple with just red wine vinegar and olive oil and you don’t even need to mix it in advance.
I added some avocado to ours, which may or may not be authentic Greek, but we love avocado and it did blend with the other flavors.
Cut your veggies up, toss them together, and boom! You’re ready for your Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again movie night in.
Greek Salad Recipe
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced into rings
- 1 pint of grape tomatoes, sliced in half on the long side
- 1 cucumber, sliced in half, then into half-circles
- 1 cup kalamata olives
- 1 small (or half of a large) red onion, thinly sliced
- 1-2 tablespoons of capers
- 5 oz. feta cheese - divided
- ½ sliced avocado (optional)
- 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Sea Salt to taste
- Add bell pepper, tomatoes, cucumber, olives, red onion, capers, and 4oz. of the feta cheese to a bowl. Toss gently to combine.
- Drizzle with red wine vinegar and olive oil. Sprinkle on oregano and sea salt. Gently toss to coat veggies in the dressing.
- Top with the remaining feta cheese and avocado if using.
Turn this into an entire meal by serving it with pita bread. You could fill the pita pockets with the salad, or do what we did which was just scoop up the veggies onto the bread and use it like a utensil.
I made this over lunchtime while the kids were at school and we had it for dinner, so it definitely will keep for a little while. Just watch the avocado if you use it. That can brown more quickly.
