Burrata is fresh mozzarella with a creamy liquid center. They've recently started carrying it in larger supermarkets like Whole Foods. In a pinch, use a really good fresh mozzarella (usually stored in its brine).

And a tag is a key word, in your case, something like "burrata."

Bonnie, I made this salad and it is simple, fresh and delicious. I used a nice
goat cheese because it was too hot to drive around looking for Burrata.

Burrata is a by-product of fresh mozzarella that originates from Puglia. The leftover pieces are torn into shreds and mixed with cream (this is stracciatella - roughly translates to "shreds" from stracciare (to tear)). The mixture is encased in a "pouch" of mozzarella so that when you cut into it, the creamy mixture oozes out (think of it like the cheese version of a poached egg).
