You could try “English Idioms in Use” published by Cambridge University Press.
I’ll just add that it’s important to teach and practise idioms in context. I think care needs to be taken when teaching idioms. Foreigners can sound stilted or old-fashioned if they don’t know the connotation of idioms and can use them in unsuitable ways in formal situations.
