To use overcooked for white beans for salad?

My husband is very sensitive to undercooked beans, so when I was boiling a pot of cannellini beans the other day I made sure to get his seal of approval before pulling them off the stove (lest I hear about how they're too crunch every time he eats them). He said they were way undercooked so I left them on for longer, and of course, they overcooked slightly. They aren't too bad but a lot of them (maybe 1/3) started breaking apart. I had initially been cooking them to use in a bean salad. I know this may seem like a dumb question because it's just a matter of taste, but what do people think about using mushier beans for salad? Should I just use them in a soup/chili instead? Think they will be okay in a salad?
