website for idiomatic expressions?

I agree with prior posts here that literal translations of idiomatic expressions should be avoided, but often I can tell a phase is idiomatic (because it doesn't really make sense when translated literally) but don't know what its idiomatic meaning is - do people have good online resource(s) to look these up?

Any dictionary should be fine. Normally, they include idiomatic expressions. http://http://www.wordreference.com/ e.g. for 'darse cuenta' you have to look for 'cuenta'.
