You might want to check out Louw and Nida "Greek-English Lexicon of the NT
based on Semantic Domains". It is two volumes, one being an index. The
entries in the index are like this:

  a. go up ............. 15.101
  b. go aboard ......... 15.99
  c. sprout and grow ... 23.196
  d. grow up ........... 23.189
  ANABAINW : unit
    begin to think ...... 30.17

In other words, idioms are listed directly in the index.
